Arkansas State University will be celebrating the annual National Day of Writing a little differently this year. Instead of celebrating it on one day, it will actually take place over the course of a week. The festivities are scheduled to take place during the week of October 22nd through the 26th and we will have more detailed information during next week’s A-State Connections on KASU. The National Day of Writing at A-State will kick off Thursday night with a live performance of a staged reading of the stories from Arkansas Death Row Inmates. It is called On the Row. Telling us more about this writing project is Dr. Kristi Costello. She is an Associate Professor of English and is Director of Arkansas State’s Writing Program and the Writing Center. She gives the backstory as to how this project started. Click on the Listen button for the entire interview.
